Kennady Diamonds Plans to Start Drilling at Kennady North Next Week

Kennady Diamonds Inc. (TSXV:KDI) provided an update on its Northwest Territories-based Kennady North project, commenting that two exploration camps opened at the site on February 7; geophysics crews mobilized there soon after.

As quoted in the press release:

A range of geophysics programs, including ground-penetrating radar and Ohmmapper, are currently underway at both the Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites aimed at better defining the extent of the kimberlite emplacement prior to the start of the 2014 drill program. The geophysics crews will move to new kimberlite targets as soon as the Kelvin/Faraday geophysics program is completed. All the planned geophysics is expected to be completed by mid-March.

Mobilization of drill rigs, fuel and equipment on the seasonal ice road is underway and expected to be completed before the end of February. The planned plus 10,000 meter drill program is expected to commence next week and will focus initially on delineating the outer limits of the main Kelvin kimberlite, following which larger diameter drilling to recover the planned 25 to 30 tonne Kelvin mini-bulk sample will commence. Delineation and infill drilling is also planned for the Faraday kimberlite.  New kimberlite targets within and outside the Kelvin – Faraday kimberlite corridor will also be drill-tested.
